Bin charge ‘had to be introduced’: leader

The leader of Cheshire East Council has insisted that a controversial new wheelie bin charge is necessary to maintain the borough’s “excellent waste and recycling services”.
From this month, residents will pay £30 for a new or replacement 240-litre bin, or £25 for a smaller 140-litre bin, although the first bin to go missing or be stolen in three years will be replaced free of charge, as well as bins damaged during collection.
